County Seeks Funding




For Emergency center


Grant Application To

Cost County $10,000


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

It appears that the county
may yet have a chance to get a
new Emergency Operations
Center (EOC).
County officials recently ap-
proved a $10,000 expenditure
for the hiring of the
Tallahassee-based Disaster
Strategies & Ideas Group,
LLC, to prepare an application
for a state grant.
If successful in its grant ap-
plication, the county could re-
ceive as much as 800,01.0 for
construction of an EOC, a
longtime goal of county com-
.missioners.
The commissioners' recent
action followed a report from
Dick Bailar, Grants Director
Roy Schleicher and Emer-
gency Management Director
Carol Ellerbe.


Bailar told commissioners
that he had come before them
expecting to be the bearer of
bad news.
As of the previous day, Bai-
lar said, the word from the
state people had been that the
applications for the funding --
complete with architect and
engineer certified plans -- had
to be into the Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) by
Aug. 15.
Given that it was virtually
impossible for. the county to
get' its, architectural and engi-
neering plans for the building
dragon and certified b\
Aug. 15, Bailar said he had
come before them prepared to
tell them to forget the project.
,But just before the meeting,
he said, he had learned that the
DCA had. extended the dead-
line.
What he was saying, Bailar,
said, was that the county still


had a fighting' chance to get
the money.
"There's a lot of ifs, but we'
have a chance to get an EOC."
Bailar said. "What I'm saying


Sis, I think we may be able to
pull this off. But I want you to
know that there will be some
Specifically, he said, the


county would have to come up
with $100,000: That wasn't a
bad deal, however, considering
that the community would be
getting an $800,000 EOC, he


OFFICIALS and others here are scrambling to get their ducks in row as quickly as
possible in order to be able to compete for the $20 million that's being made ayail-

said.
On the other side of the
equation, Bailer said, -The
county wouldn't have to come
up with the required 25 percent
match, which equated to about
$200,000.
The reason the county was
exempt from the 25 percent
match, he reminded commis-
sioners, was because of its des-
ignation as one of Florida's
fiscally constraint counties.
Schleicher explained that the
original intent had been to dis-
tribute the state money among
the, counties with the greatest
need for an EOC, which would
have put Jefferson County near
the top of the list. .
Indeed, a state survey con-
ducted earlier this year found
that 22 of the state's 67 coun-
ties had- inadequiAte EOCs;,-'i"

Meaning that the building on
N. Jefferson Street housing the

eration is incapable of with-
standing hurricane winds of
111 miles per hour or greater.

City Wants To Extend


Sidewalk On West Side

State Says District School


Action Plan is Exceptional


RAY CICHON
Managing Editor


Jefferson County School
District received high praise
from Education Commissioner
John Winn in a telephone con-
ference call Monday, for full
compliance with DOE require-
ments to submit its plan to
turn the high school around
from an "F" school.
Director of School Improve-
ment, Sherry Heyen, said
Tuesday that of seven schools
in four districts, Jefferson, was
the only district to meet the
deadline for submitting its Dis-
trict Action Plans


She reports that the plan was
considered exceptional by state
officials.
This requirement applies to
schools, like JCHS, which re-
ceived a second "F" on the
School Report Card, since the
State began grading schools in
1999.
Preliminary plans were due
at DOE June 30, with revisions
to be submitted by July 12.
Heyen said the conference
call Monday was designed to
advise districts of where they
stood.
State Education Officials
complimented the Jefferson
District for "doing more with
less," Heyen said, referring to


the fact that this is a small dis-
trict and receives much less in
funding than larger districts.
The District Action Plan is
designed to meet 26 criteria,
defining what action is being
taken to improve the "F"
score.
One of the state board's cri-
teria is to replace the school
principal with one who has
proven experience in improv-
ing school grades.
This was accomplished here,
following the resignation of
Principal Chalmus Thomas,
with the appointment of Juli-.
ette Jackson, who will head
both Howard Middle and Jef-

City officials are wanting to
proceed with phase 2 of the'
sidewalk extension project on
W. Washington St.
Last week, the City Council
authorized its consultant engi-
neers George & Hutcheson
Engineering, Inc. -- to seek a
$375,000 grant from the De-
partment of Transportation
(DOT) for the phase 2 exten-
sion. DOT funding "' made
phase one possible.
The plan. is to extend the
sidewalk, which presently ends
at Willow St., west to' Holly
Road. The sidewalk would
then travel south on Holly
Road to the planned Crooked
Creek subdivision, where it
would link with that develop-
ment's sidewalk system.

Total length of the six-foot
wide sidewalk will be 2,750
lineal feet. The sidewalk is to
be constructed in two distinct
sections.
The first section will proceed
along the backside of the
grassed swale on the south side
of US 90 from Willow Street
to Holly Road. It will consist
of 950 lineal feet.
This section, however, will
entail construction of an ele-
vated boardwalk over the low
area adjacent to the roadway.
The elevated boardwalk,
which will be constructed be-
hind the existing guardrail,
will be 550 lineal feet.
The second section, consist-


ing of 1,800 lineal feet, will be
the portion that goes south, on
the west side of Holly Road to
the Crooked Creek
subdivision.
The extension between Wil-
low Street and Holly Road
originally was supposed to be
part of the phase 1 construc-

Nuisance animals 'continue
to be a problem in the city. At
least they are on Shady Lane
Road, according to Evelyn Ha-
gan, a resident of the street.

Hagan appeared before the
City Council last week to de-
mand that something be done
about the problem.
She said cats and dogs were
overrunning her neighborhood
and making it impossible for
her and other residents to en-
joy their own backyards.
"It's so bad, you can't walk
in your yard because of the
poop," Hagan said. "And you
can't put out your garbage in
the morning before going to
work."
She wondered if Shady
Lane was the only part of town
with a problem of nuisance
animals.
Not at all, City Superinten-
dent Don Anderson assured
her. He said* other parts of


tion, which the city completed
earlier this year. Increased
construction costs, however,
forced a reduction of the scope
of the phase 1 work in the final
analysis.
In its request for the new
funding, the city argues that
(See Sidewalk, Page 2)


town had problems of nuisance
animals. The difference was
that city'crews were successful
in capturing nuisance animals
in other parts of town, he said.

Anderson offered as a reason
* for the lack of success on
Shady Lan- the fact that resi-
dents there weren't willing to
let city crews place traps on
their properties.
But Hagan disabused the
council of this notion immedi-
ately, pointing out that she and
neighbors had allowed traps to
be placed on their properties,
to no avail ultimately.
"The problem died down for
a while, but it has flared back
'up again." she said.
Anderson offered a host of
reasons why the problem was
difficult to controlled, includ-
ing stolen traps, slow-acting
tranquilizers that allow ani-
mals plenty of time to run and
hide, and runaway dogs that let
city crews on citywide chases.
"We'll. keep trying, but we
can't promise anything," An-

the sidewalk extension is
needed for pedestrian 'safety,
and. to encourage walking,
which leads to a healthier life-
style.
.Officials point out that since
completion of the first phase of
the project, citizens have used
the sidewalk regularly to ac-
cess the Health Department's

mnii.tration building and other
businesses alongside'US 90 ..-
Not to mention that two new -


restaurants have since opened
up along this section of road,
prompting more pedestrian

In addition, city officials
point to the tremendous
growth that the city is experi-
encing on the west side, with,
two planned subdi isions that
will add more than 400 resi-
dences.

Residents Lament Rising


Gas Prices, Set Priorities


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

- The rapidly rising price of
gas is putting the pinch on
, the pocketbooks of local resi-
dents, causing many to
choose priorities.
Residents were questioned,
at random, and echoed simi-
lar sentiments.
Lucy .Raeside said of the
rising gas prices, "It sure isn't
* gobd. Fuel costs are even af-
, fecting the electric bill, and
it's off the chart.
"The recent fuel adjustment
is about 30 percent of the
bill," said Raeside.. "We're
not going anywhere %e don't
have to go.
S"The price of e ern l'ting is
'going up because of th e fuel
prices. We're having to cut
coriers everywhere, and hear
ing the children whine, about,
losing more of their. rra\el
time."


She explained that both of
her children take music les-
sons in Tallahassee, once a
week on different days. "I
don't want to, but I may have
to cut that too," she added.'
Sidonia Deighton said, -"The
gas prices are just too high for
me. I'm having to cut back oni
everything, especially recrea-.
tional activities. The price of
everything is going up be-,
,1 cause of the gas prices."
Resident Patty Hardy said,
"The. prices are. atrocious.,
Gas jumped another dime just
this morning. I try not to go ,
anywhere unless I absolutelN
have to go, and it's terrible.
."Sometimes I think these
places have to hire someone
full time just to change the
prices on the signs all the
, time, because the\ 're chang-,
ing so often." said Hardy. "I
also noticed the prices going
up when, oti don't even see
the fuel trucks making a de-
livery. I'm sure price gouging,


is going on everywhere.
"The bad thing about it is
that we're in a rural commu-
.nity, so we can't even take the
bus," said Hardy. "We'll just -
have tp keep tightening our ;
belts as the prices rise."
Sharon Higgs added, "You
do have to cut back every- z
where. -You do what you've.
got to do. I only travel out of
town once per month, but if
the; prices keep going up, I
won't be able to do that."
Local convenience store
employee Jill Feliciano said, "
I won't even buy this gas, and
I work here. I can't afford gas
to run errands, it takes all my
money just to assure that I
have enough gas to get to
work. Pretty soon, it'll cost
me more to get here than what
I earn.
"I have had to.cut all of my
entertainment down to noth-
ing. and all work und no play
makes Jill a dull girl," she
said

Y ti'm '" Opinion & ,Comment
Important In Diet -
Im p o r t a* ..**. ** ..-.. *:


A recent survey of nearly
700 Americans showed that 72
.percent believe they are
healthy eaters, yet government
data proves otherwise.
The USDA recently revealed
that Americans get plenty of
protein and carbohydrates, but
often fall short on key nutri-
ents such as magnesium, po-.
tassium and vitamins C and E.
"Fifty years ago, we only,
recognized extreme cases of
vitamin deficiencies, like
scurvy, which is caused by a
lack of vitamin C," said Car-
roll Reider,. MS, RD, Nature
Made vitamins director of sci-
entific affairs and education.
"Science.has advanced. We,
now know that even small'
amounts of vitamin deficien-
cies hurt us much more than
people iealiZe.' ... ..
; while e most Americans ap-
pear %%ell fed, a key question
is: Are you nurritionally' Fit.
To access sour nutritional con-_
dition, Reider :posed the fol-
lowing questions.
People who wear sunscreen,
live in northern climates or
have darker skin may not re-
ceive optimal levels ofyitamin
D, which is made following
exposure to sunlight.
Vitamin D helps the body ab-
sorb calcium and may 'also
promote ovarian, breast. pros-
tate, heart and colon health.
Reider suggests .1,000, IU of
vitamin D daily for people,


who spend most of their time
indoors and those who don't
synthesize vitamin D easily,
such as darker-skihned indi-
viduals and the elderly. Vita-
, min D food sources include
milk and fatty types of fish;
however, it is hard to achieve
optimal intake through food
alone. It is also available in
supplement form.
Does dinner typically 'consist
of meat, starch and the same
green Vegetable?
For optimal .health, add more
colors to your diet. Vegetables
such as steamed carrots, pep-
pers and red cabbage add 'vi-
brant hues to the dinner plate
while citrus wedges brighten
the standard'bed of greens.
Eating a variety of fruits and
vegetables maximizes nutrient
intake and provides antio\i-
..dants. AtNich help fight free
radicals that may cause prema-
ture aging. '
"A multivitamin formulated
for your age and gender is also
a good way to compensate for
dietary imbalances." Reider
said.
The American Heart Asso-
ciation recommends two serv-
ings of fish per week. Rieder
suggests salmon and tuna,
which are, rich in omega-3
fartt acids. Some studies sug-
gest omega-3. fatty acids may
promote heart health. Other
sources, include .walnuts, flax-
seed or vitamins .


BY MERRY ANN FRISBY

I use, but do not automati-
cally love, most high- tech
stuff. Last week I applied for a
passport, which requires two
photos. I thought that was easy
enough. My friend Tom Love
had taken a rather nice picture
of me.
I met with Dale Boatwright


corpse- like version of me. I fi-
nally turned the entire passport
package into a wonderfully po-'
lite and knowledgeable clerk.
But then I have never been
too good at.following instruc-
tions. When I was in middle
school, my mother bought me
some 5-Day Deodorant Pads
Remember those drippy little
cotton discs? I read the direc-'


who said that he would Send .t4ions aqd proceeded to put it
my application in' but he also 1n 'tiVe times a DAY. By the
said. that -the .U.S.governmen.;t4aimrl' had used the deodorant


was quite meticulous about the
size of \our head in the photos.
lt a surfeit of caution. I de-
cided to hate the professional
picture made.
They made the photo with
the right head size, pro-
grammed into a computer.
'It really looks like morgue
photo. If I am lost over seas,
they will be looking for a


for two weeks, my underarms
%were ra", cracked and sticking'
to mn sides

Several years ago, Gary
Wright convinced my that an
ATM would be practical things'
to have. I needed money to use
'during the day. I left for work
Before the bank opened. So i.
decided to try it. My first at-


tempt was a disaster and em-
barrassing.
I did not realize- that the
ATM machine was designed to
be used by someone in a CAR.
About 7.30 one morning I
parked, got out of my car and.
attempted to get some lunch
*money. The lines do not match
up if you are bent over. I failed.
to push the correct buttons so
many times that the machine
grabbed my card.
The ATM would not relin-
quish the card.. I assume it
thought I was a cheat or a
trickster My back was sore
from bending over so long to
accomplish this transaction.

As Jerry Boatwright pulled
up, I was muttering and com-
plaining about the notion that
this confounded machine was.
ih any way considered a con-


venience! He laughed, loaned
me $20.00 from his pocket. He
said he 'yould get my card.to '
David later in the day, and he
promised not to tell how stupid.
I looked! What a gentleman.
When I worked, I periodi-
cally had to get maps for trials.
Therefore, I spent some time
in planning departments.. I
spent just.enough time there to
know that these folks really
have to know high- tech.,

I note that we here in Jeffer-
son County will soon be hir-
ing a new County Planner. I
hope our' commissioners con-
sider hiring someone who
really knows about all the dif-
ferent fanc) computers re-
quired of the job. I cannot
imagine dealing with. that
overload of information,
myself.


Regulate Gambling On 'Net?


Chewing Gum

Has Long History


It's been a tool for diplo-
macy, a space-age way to keep
astronauts' teeth healthy and
has been paired with some of
America's most famous icons.
It's chewing gum- and it may
have been discovered when its
modern day inventor was
chewing on ways to reinvent
the wheel.
Thomas Adams, often re-
ferred to as "The Father of
Gum," is said to have first
tried to mix chicle (a natural
gum base that had been-
chewed in Mexico for genera-
tions) with rubber to create a
cheaper product for carriage
wheels.
After experimenting without,
success, it's believed he over-
heard a little girl ordering
chewing gum at a drugstore
and then decided to use the
chicle for chewing gum. At
that time, chewing gum was
made from paraffin wax. Ad-
ams bet that'his chicle would
be a popular substitute. His
wager paid off.
In Louisville, Kentucky, a
drugstore owner named John
Colgan sold gum from the bal-
sam tree, flavored with pow-
dered sugar. After Adam's son
(who was a traveling
salesman) paid Colgan. a visit,
he was sold on the merits of
using chicle gum-instead.


Using the new chicle gum
imported from Me\ico. Colgan
introduced a new, flavored'
gum called "Colgan's Taffy
Tolu Chewing 'Gum." The
product became an overnight
success.
Since then, gim manufactur-
ers have found a number of
ways to create exciting gum
sensations. For instance, Tri-
.dent Splash" has a liquid-filled
center surrounded by a soft,
chewy gum with a sweet, crisp,
outer shell.
It comes in two surprising
flavors that are a far cry from
the powdered sugar gum sold
by Hon Colgan: peppermint
with vanilla and strawberry
with lime.
Jonathan P. Primley .had a
sense -of humor that upset
proper Victorian .rules of eti-
quette. At that time, no "proper
lady" would be caught chew-
ing gum. Yet Primley's inven-
tion of the. first ever fruit-
flavored gum, which he called
Kiss-Me proved very popular.
The gum's Slogan was: "Far
Better Than A Kiss."
The first sugarless gum- Tri-
dent- was introduced in the
1960s. Since its introduction,
. people have chewed more than
4.5 billion pieces of the gum.
Placed end to end, that's

S\\hat'sthe big deal about
-gambling? If a person wants to
partake in games of chance for
money,- \h\ is it anybody's
business? How and why in the
world did the state and the fed-
eral government get involved
in this freedom of choice pri-
vate activity?
Government involvement is
obvious and predictable. Un-
der the guise of regulating the
gambling industry to protect
American citizens against graft
and cokupiion, the coffers of
the state and. federal treasuries
are routinely stuffed with extra


tax dollars they can use for pet
projects.
The very thought of any
*form of gambling taking place
Sirhout the sticky fingers of
the government bureaucrats in-
volved, is pure folly.
"Moreover, it is disgraceful
Show state and federal enforce-
ment agencies pick and choose,
the who, what, when and
where of actions to monitor
and control gambling.
Little did I know as a teen-
ager that our group of friends
getting together and playing
penn\ ante poker for dimes
and nickels was breaking the
;la% How' about those bingo
nights at Saint John's Catholic
church down the street run by


Sister Mary and nuns of re-
demption? Isn't that a source
of gambling .revenue for the
non-prfit church treasury? y,
Then there are those pesky
sports pools most of us partake
in during the: different sporting
seasons. Nothing like working
the brackets to pick the final
four in the NCAA college bas-
ketball tournament and hope-
fully walking way with a few
bucks. How about those. Super
Bowl or World Series pools
where you put down your
money and select a few
squares on the card hoping
your teams end up scoring the
right numbers?

the Relay for Life. I've given

enough to win a raffle for one
item or another. Yes!, that is a
form of gambling.
Now the federal government
is hot on the trail of Internet
gambling. Their quest in real-
ity has nothing to do with the
laws about gambling or regula-
tions, it is all about the govern-
ment not getting its financial
cut of the action. Isn't that
what a Mafia used to be ac-
cused of?

Helmet Laws Prevent Injuries


By Rex M. Rogers
Columnist

Pittsburgh Steelers Quarter- -
back Ben Roethlisberger's mo-
torcycle accident this week
was serious and unfortunate.
The youngest quarterback to
ever lead his team to a Super
Bowl victory required fairly
extensive facial surgery, and I
wish him the very best toward
a quick and full recovery.
Whether or not Ben's head
injuries could have been
avoided if he had worn a hel-
met cannot be definitively an-
swered. But we can speak


from patterns and experience.
Helmets are required in 20
States and the District of Co-
lumbia. According to the Na-
tional Highway Traffic Safety
Administration,' states that
'have repealed such laws have
*'counted significant increases
in injuries, deaths, and medical
,';costs. The same organization
tells us that the fatality rate per
,million miles traveled by auto-
mobile is 1.23. For motorcy-
cles its 38.93 Motorcyclists are
always at greater exposure and
greater risk.
On lune 7, 2006, the Michi-
gan State Legislature repealed
-Michigan's 37 year old man-


datory motorcycle helmet law.,
Only a veto from Governor
Jennifer Granholm will stop
the newly endorsed bill from
becoming law. The old law re-
quired a helmet for all riders
whereas the new law would al-
low those over 21 years to
make a choice.
A 2004 study by the Michi-
gan State Police contends a re-
peal of the current law would
result in 22 additional fatalities
next year, along with 742 addi-
tional injuries and $140 mil-
lion in added economic costs
to Michigan citizens.
I'm both a political conser-
vative and a parent of two sons


who ride motorcycles. The
conservative in me is sensitive
to arguments that government
should .not function as "Big
Brother," telling adults what
they must wear when they ride
motorcycles. But the father in
me doesn't buy it.
The "Big Brother" argument
could be applied to virtually
every, traffic law on the books,
but we maintain them because
our collective need for public
safety outweighs our concern
for minimal intervention in in-
dividual rights to do whatever
one chooses.
To me the motorcycle helmet

ready for it.
Brumfield served as a track
coach for 23 years, during
the first two of which he as-
sisted Harry Jacobs, and the
team went to State and came
out championship runners-up.
'After he became the head
coach, the team won nine Dis-
trict Championships and
JCHS was in the top ten
teams in the state every year.
"I was known as the Tigers'
'wilnrngest' coach," said
Brumfield.
He coached girls' basketball
for nearly 18 years, ending
vwith 104 wins and 71 losses.
Of that time, JCHS won dis-
trict once (in his first year as
coach), won regional once
and went to the state play-

"We've done very well over
the years," said Brumfield.
During his years as coach,
Brumfield also conducted
summer basketball and vol-
leyball programs, keeping the
girls in shape at all times.
"I was really looking for-
ward to one more year at Jef-
ferson after I retired, but the
new administration informed
me that an available position
for a social studies teacher
couldn't be guaranteed," said

County Coalition Learns Of


Community Action Services


DEBBIE SNAPP
Staff Writer

The Jefferson County Com-
munity Coalition met in June
to hear about the services of-
fered from the Capital Area
Community Action Agency.
Dorothy Inman-Johnson,
executive director and Anita
Morrell, families services pro-
grams director presented the
information.


The agency seeks to serve
the impoverished of Jefferson
County by implementing
strategies designed to create
self-sufficiency among fami-
lies overcoming poverty.
The agency sponsors sum-
mits and conferences to pro-
mote community action for
low income families, and also
raises over one million in lo-
cal match for federal awards.

Gum Has Long History


(Continued From Page 4)
enough. gum to span the dis-
tance from New York to Los
Angeles 18 times, reach half-
way to the moon or circle the
globe 1.8 times.
According to Cadbury Ad-
ams USA LLC. which is the U.
S. business unit of confection-
ery and beverage leader Cad-
bury Schweppes (NYSE:
CSG), and the makers of Tri-
dent.
In fact, the gum was origi-
nally sold to soften tooth
tartar.
Around the year 200 A.D.,
Mayans of Central America
are believed to have been
chewing chicle- a gum resin.
At the same time, native peo-
ples, in North America are
thought to have been chewing





Regulate
(Continued From Page 4)
feds to tax Internet gambling,
there would be no problem at
all. The off-shore agencies that
run these gambling web sites,
however, are safe from the
greedy long arm of the U.S.
government, so pouting legis-
lators are out to shut them
down.
I'm not interested in gam- '
bling on line, but if someone
wants to take the chance, who
cares? It's just another case of
the government being greedy
and using the situation to stick
its nose into the private lives
and actions of Americans un-
der the banner of saving us
from ourselves.
There are a lot more impor-
tant things going on in the na-
tion and the world that need
our legislators' time and atten- -
tion. Their very interest in pur-
suing this matter clearly
smacks of their frustration
and resentment over not being
able to satisfy their insatiable
craving for more and more
money to squander away.
I figure it is only a matter of
time before the government
starts to tax the soft drink or
ice cream industry for making
us and our kids fat! It's a genu-
ine art how legislators can 'in-
crease the size of the treasury,
while simultaneously trying to
convince us that they are' only
taking actions to protect us.


Helmet Laws
(Continued From Page 4)
law simply makes common
sense. I must part company
with some of my conservative
friends and say that I hope the
governor vetoes the Michigan
State Legislature's bill.


County
Coalition
To.Meet

Jefferson County Commu-
nity Coalition will meet 9:30
a.m. Tuesday, July 25 at the
Library.

Scheduled Guest Speaker is
Karen DeRosier with the Epi-
lepsy Foundation.

This agency sponsors vital
programs for clients in the
county, and the program will
explore how to reach those
services.


resin from spruce trees.
In 1900, the first gumballs
hit American shelves.
In 1928, the first bubble
gum was invented by a 28-
year-old accountant named
Walter Diemer:
The first bubble gum cards
were introduced in the 1930s.
The pictures ranged from was
heroes, to Wild West figures.to
pro-athletes.
During WWll, U.S. mili-
tary personnel gave American
chewing gum away to people
they met overseas- helping
make friends and spread the
popularity of gum.
In 1964, NASA gave sug-
adless gum to astronauts on the
Gemini space missions to help
keep their teeth and gums
healthy.
